Not just Holistic, but how to use E: All of the Above!

I made this blog because I did tons of research on success stories and research worldwide and used it on my dog with nasal cancer named Lucy. So, now my hobby is molecular biology. The treatment uses combination of health store supplements, some prescription meds, diet changes, and specific Ayurvedic and Chinese medicinal herbs. I just wanted her to have a better quality of life. I thought this combination of E: All the Above (except no radiation or chemo and surgery for this cancer was not an option) would help that for sure, but it actually put her bleeding nasal cancer in remission!
My approach to cancer is about treating the whole animals biologic system. But I do hate the word 'Holistic'. Sounds like hoo hoo. This is science based, research based data and results of using active herbal compounds that happen to be readily available and common. Some call it Nutriceuticals. Others may call it Orthomolecular cancer therapy. Or Cancer Immunotherapy.
-Slow cancer cell reproduction
-Make cancer cells become easier targets for the immune system
-Kill the cancer cells
-Rid the cancer cells
-Remove the toxins it produces
- Stimulate and Modulate the immune system
-Control secondary symptoms like bleeding, infection, inflammation, mucous, appetite, or pain for a better feeling animal
-Working with your vet for exams and prescriptions that are sometimes needed when conditions are acute.
Just by using a multi-modal treatment approach that is as diverse in attack as possible. Both conventional and natural.
The body conditions that allowed it to develop in the first place must be corrected. If caught early enough, like with Lucy, this ongoing maintenance correctional treatment is all that was required at this point to achieve, so far, more than 10 TIMES the life expectancy given (more than 60 months) after diagnosis WITH remission. I did not use radiation or chemotherapy or surgery.
I hope this cancer research can help your dog as well.

In Loving Memory my Lucy December 2016
CURRENT STATUS - It was for more than 5 YEARS after Lucy was diagnosed by biopsy in March 2011 with nasal cancer that she lived. And she was in remission for 4 of 5 years using no radiation or chemo! Now multiply that by 7 to be 35 years extended!! She was 12.5 years old - equivalent to almost 90 human years old. She ended her watch December 1, 2016. I miss her so much.

Moducare dosage for dog cancer


Plant sterols and sterolins - an important advancement in naturally balancing the immune system*
-found naturally in all fruits and vegetables
-provides an optimal sterol:sterolin ratio based on numerous clinical studies
-helps maintain a healthy balance of T-helper 1/T-helper 2 white blood cells*
-modulates a stress response by supporting optimal DHEA:cortisol ratios*

Moducare® is considered a daily supplement and should be taken as long as you want to aid the immune system to be balanced. Sterols and sterolins do not “fix” the immune system, but provide the nutrients needed to help keep it in balance. They are absorbed in the small intestine and are then transported to the cell lipid (fat) membrane. Here, they are beneficial to the messenger system within the cell and modulate specific immune factors that can help control disease conditions.

There has been extensive testing and clinical trials, including
double-blind, placebo-controlled studies.

These extractions are actually plant fats, and they can have a profound effect on the body’s immunity and it’s ability to fight off foreign invaders, including cancer cells. After more than a decade of clinical research and double-blind studies, Moducare™ has proved to be effective at treating autoimmune disorders as well as cancer and HIV. In fact, an HIV trial showed that over the five year term of the study, T-cell counts remained stable in subjects that were given the sterol and sterolin combination.

Moducare is well tolerated and considered safe. However, when the immune system becomes balanced, some sensitive individuals may experience symptoms that indicate the body is trying to rid itself of toxins. These symptoms are temporary and may include digestive problems, rashes, headaches and fatigue.


Moducare is a blend of plant sterols and sterolins that can help promote a balanced immune system.* Plant sterols – phytosterols and their glycosides (also known as phytosterolins) – are fats that are present in fruits, vegetables, and medicinal plants. Beta-sitosterol (BSS) and its glycoside (BSSG) are the most abundant of these plant sterols. BSS and BSSG, even at very low levels, have been shown to enhance the activity of various cells in the body recognized as having positive immune system activity.*

Moducare supplementation also helps maintain a normal ratio of the adrenal hormones cortisol and DHEA, subsequently buffering negative stress responses.* Moducare also improves the balance of T-helper 1 to T-helper 2 cells, as a result enhancing cellular immunity and down-regulating overactive immune responses.*

Moducare's potential to promote immune health in a group of volunteers participating in an ultra-marathon was investigated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Subjects in the Moducare group maintained a more healthy immune response compared to individuals taking the placebo. The benefit to the immune system was believed to be because cortisol levels did not increase in response to the exercise stress in those taking Moducare.*

An article in the INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF IMMUNOPHARMOCOLOGY using the same formulation showed a T-cell proliferation response from 20-920% in human subjects after taking it for 4 weeks. Also an increase in interleukin-2 and gamma interferon from 17-61%, an increase in natural killer cell activity, anti-inflammatory response similar to cortisone, fever reducing properties similar to aspirin, anti-hyperglycemic effects, and anti-edema effects have been shown. It increased DHEA levels and lowered the cortisol: DHEA ratio and has effectively treated benign prostratic hypertrophy. The Moducare sterols are suppose to act as immune system adaptogens and are most effective at quenching auto-immune response such as in rheumatoid arthritis. According to literature distributed in other countries, the following conditions have been shown to respond to supplementation of sterols and sterolins: rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, MS, Parkinson's, cancer, crohns, celiac, psoriasis, diabetes (types I and II), asthma, eczema, chronic bacterial and viral infections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moducare is phenomenal for dogs, July 12, 2010 
This review is from: Thorne Research - Moducare (Plant Sterinols) - 90's (Misc.) 
 I started using Moducare with my Basset Hound after he was operated on for cancer. In combination with Immugen (also from Thorne) and fish oil capsules (just generic ones), this dog thrived and lived way beyond the average life expectancy for a Basset. He recently passed away at age 16.5 years--5 years after he had cancer (5 dog years is what 7x5=35 human years). His sister (and littermate) died in November 2009 and she had had a variety of issues, from allergies to behavioral things. The only difference is that her brother got the Moducare, Immugen and fish oil for years. I am totally convinced that this regimen extended my dog's life. In the end his back legs gave out due to arthritis and spondylosis. Other than that, he was mentally fit and full of energy. I am putting my 11-year-old Sheltie-Border collie mix on this regimen at once.

 It's a great product. Our 6 year old lab has been taking Moducare since he start his Chemo Therapy. He has been in remission and I think this helps his immune system.

 Our 9 yr old male cat is going thru a tough time with possible lymphoma, and our veterinary homeopath has us giving him one capsule/day of this to support his immune system. 

We give him 1/3 capsule in a small bit of wet food, 3 daily in order to get a full capsule in him. He eats very tiny portions, so he can tell something is different if I try to use more than 1/4 or 1/3 of a capsule each time, which forces me to do the tiny portions so I can get this into him. 

It doesn't taste bad or have an odor, but the change in consistency mixing any powder into a tiny bit of wet food is enough for my guy to notice. If I give a larger portion of food, he can't eat it all. 

It's only been a month, but I trust our homeopath & our cat is acting like a kitten since consulting with her & this is one of several products we are using at this time. 

The homeopath brought this cat back from certain death one month ago, so whatever she tells me to do, I do!

from the bottle and web:
"Dosage for cats: ½  - 1 capsule daily.
Dosage for dogs: 2 capsules for each 25 lbs. body weight daily.

  • Best if taken on an empty stomach, 1 hour before meals.
  • Do not take Moducare with animal fats, as animal fats inhibit absorption.
One capsule per day for cats and small dogs, one capsule twice per day for dogs over 50 pounds.
If your pet is unable to swallow the capsule, you can open it and mix the powder with any fruit or vegetable e.g. applesauce, peanut butter, pumpkin. It is important to not give Moducare™ with a meal since pet foods usually contain cholesterol. You could give it one half hour before or two hours after the meal.

You CAN take Moducare with antibiotics from what I have read. It has no interference or interaction with any drug, only exception is steroids and one just has to take a higher dosage of Moducare with steroids. 
Moducare: first week (or two) loading dosage. 6 caps daily divided into 3 dosages on EMPTY stomach. Thereafter, 1 capsule 3 times a day on empty stomach.
Never take more than 2 caps at one time as body can only absorb 2 at one time. I usually give Lucky 1 or 2 in the morning and 1 or 2 at night, depending on what I feel like. But he is well stabilized, having been on it two years. Moducare also balances DHEA/cortisol ratio so it helps all stress related conditions. "
